Does a micro climate require a macro lens?

 I was playing yesterday - I don't think anyone was looking. Please don't tell.

It seems there was a dusting of snow yesterday, And in her hurry to photograph 

the wonderland, Vicki knocked off one of the 4 flowers growing from her Amaryllis.

She saved it in a red pot. And I felt I would like to try to photograph it - up close - using

my zoom lens, And then I thought why not use my macro. And while I am at it, try bouncing the camera flash off some white paper onto the ceiling to illuminate the flower. Otherwise I used natural light.

But I am not going to tell you what setup was used for each photo - just enjoy the flower.

I took 17 more photos - beware of comments!

  1. These photos really capture the different textures of this gorgeous flower. Nature really is amazing. With the snow receding on neighbours' property here in Toronto, the snow drops -- and the shoots of tulips -- are visible in some gardens.
